Having only a couple months to sort out my visa, Indah was such an excellent source to have in order to process everything correctly and in a quick manner. She provided the right tools to keep the process simple and user friendly with a professional manner. I would recommend Indah (ONE derland Consulting) for anyone seeking help on attaining a visa. I know if I ever need to apply for another visa, Indah will be the first person I contact! Thanks again for all your help!

We would like to say thank you so much for assisting me with my working visa application recently. I was so thrilled when you contacted me to advise that a company offered work with them. From then, everything went so quickly. We did all the skills assessment and preparation of my visa, and it was granted less than 6 months. There is nothing I can say, except thank you for helping me achieve my dream in this beautiful country. I would now like to ask for your help again to bring my partner to Australia. Thank you for keeping me updated with the progress and any changes to the rules. I am sure that many people are very happy with your service!

I will be forever grateful to Mbak Indah for taking care of my permanent visa application in Perth. It got approved faster than I thought and I am now happily residing in Australia with the freedom to pursue my dreams. I found ONE derland Consulting through a simple search from the migration agent database. I chose her because I felt I could trust her and because she gave me great advice and handled my application very professionally. She keeps you up to date and it has been a pleasure cooperating with her. I fully recommend her to anyone who is looking for migration consulting services, may it be a study visa, graduate, or permanent visa. You can’t get any better advice and representation than this.

Additionally, in response to the recommendations of the Report of the Migrant Workers’ Taskforce, the Australian Government will strengthen the protection over migrant workers.

4. Strengthening Protection for Migrant Women

How the Budget will Affect Your Visa Application?

Looking at the 2021-22 budget for the Australian immigration program, if you are an onshore skilled and family visa applicant, the budget plan will give you a lot of advantages. Firstly, your application may be prioritised, especially if you work in the Australian critical sectors. Additionally, the onshore family visa application pipeline will be reduced which may give you to a higher chance of getting a family visa.

While for the offshore visa applicants, do not lose your hope! It might seem the onshore applicants are getting the better of the advantages, however, everything in the next program year for migration does depend on various factors including a safe quarantine program which can accommodate more returning international arrivals, and hopefully, it won’t be too long for you to be able to enter Australia.
